at the end of 2014 was prefaced on the idea that the surge would have created some better environment from which it would make sense we could leave because things would be better. if that promise is wrong and things after the surge are worse than before the surge, if things are not going to get better by the time we are set to leave, then why are we sticking with that as still being the time to leave? when the pentagon announced the end of the surge last week, when they announced the surge was over, they talked less about blunting taliban momentum and more about how the surge helped us train lots of afghan security forces. in theory, lots of trained afghan security forces is a way afghanistan could get more safe. but right now it's also a way americans get killed. by the afghans we are training and arming. afghan troops are turning around and killing american troops they're supposed to be working with at such a rate now that the training and joint operations between the two forces were halted this month. and have only now started to scale back up. that's the circumstances in which 68,000 a
. this is because we are in a very different work environment where technology is making all their jobs outdated faster and wonderfully spinning of the new jobs but they require more education. i just think that if we're going to -- by the way, i think america has a huge advantage in this world. the world will really be divided between high imagination and low imagination countries. we have the highest imagination- enabling country. if you just have the spark of an idea of, they will get you cheap chinese manufacturing. jeff ebzos will do your delivery. craigslist for your accountant. there's no country who does this matter. the problem with this is that in the days when ford will come to your town with a 25,000 person factory is over. it is now 2500 people and a robot. in that world, generating 12 million more jobs. whatever timeframe he is talking about, maybe it's possible only if we once again get everyone starting something. what worries me about romney -- they can make any projection they want, but i think we really need to rethink workplace indication and how to become a truly start a cou
not think we should make a -- divert attention to try to confront it in an external environment. continuing to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada.
in that environment? is it too unstable of an environment for effective security exercise to continue? your thoughts on that. >> i appreciate that question. in 2001, i voted to authorize use of mill tear force in afghanistan. in the days and months following the nen attacks on the united states. it was a very clear and focused megs to go after those who planned and executed that attack. and i believe our brave men and women who went to afghanistan, very capably fulfilled that mission, frankly in fairly short order. i was in afghanistan in august of 2010, in kabul and at bagram air force base. i met with wisconsin soldiers and -- soldiers and folks in the military from the senior ranks to the tissue to those coming back from forward operating bases. you would be so proud of those men and women, but the mission today this nation building mission, is not the one that was authorized. it is now time for them to come home. >> governor thompson? >> my opponent just, i think, misstated. she said she voted for the sanctions against iran. she voted against the sanctions in 2006, 2009, and 2010 and in august s
a faster and may be reinvent the rules and that is because we are in a very different work environment where technology is making jobs out a bit faster and spinning off new jobs each of the jobs require education. so i think that if we are going to -- america is a huge advantage in this world because it's -- i think the world is going to be divided going forward between the high imagination and the countries and low imagination and the countries and we have the highest imagination enabling country in the world. if you have the spark of an idea you have a delta to design this for you you skip over to the manufacturer for this and amazon will to the fulfillment and delivery and gift wrap for christmas. craigslist will get you an accountant and your logo. they are all commodities except this and there is no country that does this better. the problem with this though is the days where ford will move to the town's 25,000 person factory are over. the factory is now 2500 people may be a lot of robots. you know the old joke it will be to employees, a man and a dog the man is there to feed the
, and resilient cyber environment. we must work internationally because the cyber criminals do not respect traditional national boundaries. attacks can and do to emanate from any place around the world. last may the united states released a new international strategy for cyberspace to help provide a blueprint for building an international framework to make sure cyberspace more secure and reliable. much remains to be done in this area, as the need for sustained international engagement becomes more apparent every day. as much as we have done, there's still a lot of work to do, because of threats to cybersecurity are real, serious, and the eve of rapidly. together we can and we must maintain a cyberspace that is safe and resilience that remains a source of tremendous opportunity and growth for years to come. to that end, we need to work more effectively with the private sector to tackle the difficult challenges -- first, real time information sharing between the public and private sectors, and second, whiter adoption of cybersecurity best practices for the nation's critical infrastructure. i
and clean for our communities and the environment. we're america's natural gas. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters. [ female announcer ] with cisco at the center... working together has never worked so well. so why exactly should that be of any interest to you? well, in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. like the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal that made our world a smaller place. we supported the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, so you can get cash when you want it. it's been our privilege to ba
our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. >> bill: john traveled to the university of north carolina where some incredibly dumb things are happening. for example, if you are a freshman student at unc, you can not call yourself a freshman because it's sexist. the freshman first year thing that we been talking about a little bit, you framed it as a free speech issue, which there is no policy as a free speech issue. >> political correctness issue. >> my view on it is even if, you know, helps one incoming first year feel less alienated on campus, it's a harmless change. you refer to it as disgain. i don't know, why the negative feeling towards a university policy of the official title of -- >> because enough is enough. i can't believe a woman woul
the debate, a national poll coming out, but you see the environment. one other interesting note on polling, if you average the nine states together in the various leads, almost looks identical to the national polls. five and a half point lead for the president, 49, 44 with rounding, which of course is where all the national polls sit around five points for the president. romney starts his morning in a state that hasn't been able to put into play, pennsylvania. he will speak to veterans at valley forge military academy in a philadelphia suburb. only public event of the day. he will be fund-raising in philadelphia, probably the motivation why he is in philly. slew of national polls show how damaging romney's remark on the 47% has been to his campaign. the most recent national polls trails the president by 5 to 8 points. instead of punching a national message, romney seems to be making the parochial argument. yesterday in virginia, warned an american legion audience that devastating job losses were coming if congress and the president go through with the defense cuts called sequestration. >>
a good speech at the clinton forum which was a hostile environment to come to. i think he kind of got back on the campaign trail. i agree the week was very close, but i would give romney a little bit of an edge this week. gregg: did you see "the politico" story today? they make the following point, romney might be a very good and competent president, but he's a lousy candidate and campaigner. is there something to that? >> well, there is. you know, he needs to get back to being a salesman. he has made this whole campaign about obama is so bad that the country's going to look for an acceptable alternative. the strategy of the obama team is to make him an unacceptable alternative. i think he's done more to make himself an acceptable alternative. and i think the next three, four weeks he's got to basically sell what it is he's going to do with this country. gregg: can we switch around and say the same about president obama, not a good president, but a terrific campaigner? >> well, it's both. i happen to think least a better president, but that doesn't matter, most of the american people
in half by 2020. it's good for the environment. it's good for the economy. it's good for our national security. that's what i mean when i say we need to go forward. todo.s what we're going to ne we need to give every american the chance to compete by making sure we've got the best education system in the world. that's the reason i'm standing here today. that's the gateway od the gatew th middle class. and because of the work we've already done, millions of young people are better able to afford college already. and now we've got to do mor by hiring 100,000 new math and science teachers. by making sure that we're providing millions of new slots for folks to retrain at community colleges for the jobs that exist right now. continue to lower tuition costs for students so they're not loaded up with debt once they graduate. my opponent thinks that it makes sense for us to gut our investment in education in order to give a tax break to the wealthy. i disagree. i think what the united states of america means is that no child should be deprived of a good education. it means that no family shou
, it will be despite his campaign. i think he grew up in a privileged environment, just like his father wanted to give everything he can. john mccain was someone isolated in his thinking somewhere along the way. also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges, he had a responsibility and that his class had a responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to reorganize the government so that it is efficient. he can tell you 137 things he wanted to get done. i do not think mitt romney can tell you what he wants to do. he just wants to be a good president. because of that, if he is leavihe is weaving around out there. he was a very progressive governor until he started looking presidentially and then veered over. in the primaries very much over on the right. he did not want 50%. he wanted 51.1%. i am not saying he does not have principles. he does not have a political philosophy. he does that have things he wants to accomplish. because of that, the campaign is wondering. he is wondering. i thin
. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on the consulate within a day so they could unlook military force it fight the terrorists. administration is stalled and defending their decision to initially deny what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack with press secretary jay carney saying yesterday every step of the way the information that we have provided to you and the general public about the attack in benghazi has been based on the best intelligence we've had and t
place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to boast -- to vice- president alkyl and joe -- al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points. -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more debt -- depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the sage, right down three points they want to make. when you are w

in a political environment. the fact is, it is indisputable this was clear evidence, long before susan rice was on the talk shows and before jake carney denied this was terrorism and said this was about the film. there are a lot of questions that must be answered. americans ought to demand we know why didn't you tell us the truth? i have been pretty blunt about this from day one. our government lied to us. i don't know who is responsible. i do know we have been lied to. there has been a coverup. that is unquestionable at this stage. >>dave: you compared it to watergate saying it was, perhaps, worse. this statement from the director of national intelligence. in the immediate aftermath there was information that led to us assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they become available. through our investigation we emphasized that information gathered was preliminar
